The Rights to Live Creatively: Artistic Expression, Visibility, Solidarity (Dec. 14)

The Rights to Live Creatively: Artistic Expression, Visibility, Solidarity

Second Public Event

December 14, 12-2 pm

This session is free to the public. This event will also be broadcast live on our Facebook page and YouTube channel. 

In light of right-wing authoritarianism in Haiti today that exposes the clientelist nature of the justice system and increases violence against all who seek to live creatively, this Working Session convenes to hear from Haitian freedom fighters and artists on the ground in a series of webinar discussions and focused virtual gatherings.

This second panel features cultural workers Yonel Charles, director of Marasa Rak, and Hetera Estimphil, director of KOURAJ, who will share with us the ways in which their social and cultural work challenges gendered and sexual norms and offer us another vision of and for Haiti. The conversation will be moderated by Josué Azor, and feature performances by Yonel Charles and Jenny Cadet. The goals are to think together with attendees to design an action plan that supports and amplifies their efforts toward creative living in Haiti.

If this theme speaks to your interests and commitments, and you are interested in joining a mailing list for future Haitian Studies Sexualities Working Session events, please fill out this Form and the organizers will stay in touch.
